Sidehill gougers are folkloric creatures, jokingly said to inhabit the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, the southwestern sandhills of Saskatchewan and mountainous or hilly terrian in the northern United States. The legs on one side of their body are said to be significantly shorter than the legs on the other side of their body, because they spend all their time eating grasses and other vegetation on mountain slopes.
The notion of imaginary animals with one pair of legs longer than the other in order to exist on mountainsides is popular: others include the Wild Haggis, the Sidehill Dodge Hodag, the Dahu. A similar creature in Vermont is known as the Wampahoofus. Similar animals are part of Appalachian folklore, sometimes in the form of a breed of cow with mismatched legs.
Hey Tom that thing that looks like a fire pit is a sidehill gouger nest.
